Matt McClowry will record his first live comedy album in Seattle this weekend and he's pretty excited about it. When you learn more about him, you realize why this is such a big deal. When he was a teenager, Matt was diagnosed with a high-functioning form of Autism called Asperger's Syndrome, and one of the challenges is difficulty in recognizing humor. He hasn't let that stop him, however, and has spent more than a decade honing his standup skills on comedy stages across the country. He was a winner at The World Series of Comedy, has opened for headliners like Whitney Cummings and Mark Maron, and appeared on Comcast TV and Sirius XM Radio.
Matt joined guest host Kim Holcomb to talk about his unconventional path to the comedy stage, as well as how he incorporates living with Asperger's into his stand up routine.
Matt will perform at Comedy Underground (109 S. Washington St., Seattle 98104. Phone: 206-628-0303) tonight through Saturday (April 10 - 12) with shows at 8:00pm and 10:30pm. All performances will be recorded for his new comedy CD for Uproar Entertainment. Click HERE to purchase tickets. (Please note: shows are 21 and older, please)
